Makeup ninja 💫. Fighting regretful purchases and uneven winged eye liner one beauty review at a time
Swipe left 🤷🏻♀️
I’ve heard great things about first aid, was looking forward to their skin products for a nice win-win combo (skin protectant and an extra glow). Sadly this product failed on both fronts, ESP given price point (drugstore beauty sections unite!). First as you can see packaging quickly deteriorates and looks cheap. Second on product quality it goes on basically invisible and not in a good way. The tint is weird and has a sickly looking finish. Made worse matte and not silky glow. Last, the product didn’t help my skin at all which was a bummer. Definitely better products out there and absolutely a lower price point. Save your money honey on this one
FIRST AID BEAUTY-Ultra Repair Tint Cream SPF30
Shine on you crazy diamond 💍
Wasn’t in the market for this product, but a friend sent my way. After all it is a cult classic and so many raves this gives that walking out of hair salon million dollar strut (enter wind machine). I do like this product. Easy to apply (lightweight moisture rub through locks after towel dry hair) and hair does shine. 4 out of 5 since I like it and think it adds shine, but not blown away. The ease to use and fair price point make it a solid purchase. However I would grab a mini if can and explore a few other options to find best game changer for you.
R+Co-Waterfall Moisture + Shine Lotion
If eyes are the windows to the soul, this is one bomb window frame. Eyeliners are always a struggle one on color and two on application. Colors tend to be pretty boring and go against skin then work with it. Application either heavy ink liners look like a toddler moved arts and crafts to your face, thin liners that don’t show at all (you’re welcome bank account) or pencils that hit sensitive eye area hard. Then I found this stila eye liner- yasssss!!! One the color is perfection - I have blue, grey eyes. It makes them pop with a cool tone edge in this maroon/brown color. The application is so easy with smudge brush, makes blending much easier and soft applicator on not to irritate eyes. New staple in my make up bag!
stila-Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner
My biggest skin complaint is uneven skin, on the eternal hunt for that natural porcelain glow. Naturally leads to path of exfoliants. I tried this off a recommendation and have to say, really liked it. Feels great on skin, easy to use and gently scrubs unwanted dead skin off. You will look refreshed after and help makeup application. My one amazement was how little is needed if pairing with a brightening face wash and toner. Do your bank account a favor skip the full size and go for the mini! Plus it can join you on any adventures to help prime vacation skin for picture perfect makeup 😎
dermalogica-Daily Microfoliant Exfoliator
Sexy AF 💯
As someone new to the high end hair care market, it took a lot of convincing to have me finally go in on this product. A entire year to be exact from my hair stylist. As someone blessed with natural thick and shiny hair, I thought hair products were something wouldn’t really make a difference for me. Then I tried this product and realized how wrong I was. First the packaging is perfection. Really adds some chic and style to your bathroom sink. Second the smell is effortlessly sexy and subtle. Most important the quality is there. This paired with the shampoo - my hair has never looked better! Already running to purchase my next bottle
ORIBE-Gold Lust Dry Shampoo
Forgettable Memory Mist
After trading beach life for city life. And natural wash no air dry (and I wonder why my hair was always shiny) for a sleep bang look, wow it was a whole new world of hair care. Including heat protectant to save my precious locks. I love ouia. From the sleek packaging and great smell it’s a hard brand not to love. Sadly this one fell flat. One big pro is the smell is great (as usual from this line). However the actual money shot- protecting my hair, sadly not so much :(. Actually felt sticky on my hair not using all that much and hair after straightening looked exactly the same. In addition the claim to keep style locked in, not so much. One night sleep and It was like this mist never happened. Especially for price point, save your hard earned $$ and go for quality over fragrance (better yet get both, sadly just not with ouia this time).
